In the organizer's words:
"The Sixth is his most personal work and a prophetic one at that" - so Gustav Mahler's wife Alma. And indeed: with its apocalyptic tonal language, which is only temporarily lightened, the symphony seems to anticipate Mahler's great personal catastrophes: the diagnosis of a heart condition, the death of his daughter, professional failures. It is music that looks into abysses. The interpreter of this performance is Gustavo Dudamel, one of the world's most popular conductors, who has already performed Mahler symphonies several times with the Berliner Philharmoniker.
